I am currently working on two active projects:
Upper Columbia Basin Network American Pika Research and Monitoring Program (National Park Service)
Developing a study plan for collaborative research and monitoring of American pika populations in national parks and adjacent non-park lands (e.g., US Forest Service Newberry National Volcanic Monument) within the UCBN. The plan draws upon existing NPS monitoring protocol (Jeffress et al. 2011) in use in parks in the region.
Sustainability Projects in American Samoa (Roundhouse Foundation)
Working with local partners in American Samoa to design and implement projects that reduce ecological degradation, improve economic development and increase community investment in sustainability. The first project is focused on reducing solid waste (trash) accumulation in near-shore reef systems at Utulei Beach.
